What MICHAEL JACKSON’S EARTH SONG says about a North Korean video of a virtual missile attack
It concerns an awful anti-American video released by someone in North Korea and set to Michael Jackson’s music “We are the world”, thus evidently calling on everyone to “be as one” in their hate against the US.
If the video is genuine it is not only an outrage against peace on the planet and a stupid and irresponsible saber rattling, but it is also a great disservice to Michael Jackson’s fans.
First, it contradicts everything Michael ever said or did. He loved all people on earth and excused even the worst of his enemies. The harshest reaction his detractors ever had from him was simple wonder and trying to understand why they were so keen on dragging him through the mud. Belligerence was absolutely alien to Michael and this is what he would want his supporters to avoid at all costs – even if they know that they are right through and through, and Michael’s detractors are all wrong in their stupid lies about him.
Second (and again only in case the video isn’t fake), it seems that someone in North Korea might be trying to influence a huge multitude of Michael’s fans to try and turn his supporters the world over against the country where Michael was born. If this is indeed the case I regard it as a very dangerous trend none of us should ever fall for.
Even if Michael was hounded to death by the US media and some individual crooks there, the nation is still not responsible for what these individuals did, especially since a great many honest Michael’s countrymen are fighting for the truth about Michael in the same way all the rest of us do.
And every life was also precious to Michael Jackson, especially the life of children who cannot and should never answer for what some adults do. If we could we should send a Heal the world video to N.Korea to show how Michael would have felt about their irresponsible threat.
Michael was also all about understanding other people – the woes and trouble they go through, and weaknesses all of us have. And he never brushed off as hopeless even the worst of his harassers or any other evil world personalities. In fact, he was sure that love could heal everything on this planet – every wound, every mistake made in the past and every wrong ever done.
This is why his other song, Earth song, finishes with cut trees going back to where they were growing, a dead man opening his eyes and the desert place once again being populated with animals and vegetation that seemed to be already gone.
Michael believed that evil is not forever and things can be reversed or changed if we change ourselves too and try a different path. Michael was all for growing the best within our souls in the first place and therefore no one and nothing on the planet should be a target for destruction – because once the destruction really takes over there will be no hope and no way back.
Destruction wasn’t Michael’s way and is not ours either.
Michael was all about living and changes that we are capable to create with our own hands if we really want it. And his Earth Song is not only about the environment as everyone usually thinks. It is also about the revival of human beings to what they were initially supposed to be like – responsible, caring, loving and being together no matter which place of the planet they found themselves in.
Let us consider that the “Earth song” is an answer Michael Jackson would have given if he were able to see together with us the N.Korean video we’ve just seen.
